Item Description...
This social history of earliest Christianity radically re-evaluates both the methods and models of other studies. Justin Meggitt draws on the most recent research in classical studies on the economy and society of the Roman Empire. He examines the economic experiences of the Pauline churches, and locates Paul and the members of his communities within the context of the first century Roman economy. He explores their experiences of employment, nutrition and housing. He uncovers and describes the unique responses that they made to such a harsh environment. And he questions whether, from the outset, Christianity included a number of affluent individuals.A thoroughly researched and ground-breaking study.>

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Outrageously original!  Feb 12, 1999
An audacious book that takes to task much of New Testament scholarship. It is outrageous in its bold assertion of the correct and proper way to do social research on the NT - but it is deliciously right in so doing. One can only marvel at the author's skill in dismantling the Aunt Sallys of many a Biblical scholar.
A book of genuine significance for NT scholarship  Feb 12, 1999
A book of supreme importance. It grapples with the simplistic state of New Testament scholarship and shows with a clear method and a profound grasp of the sources that we can reconstruct only with care the social background of the Pauline writings. It is a "must read" for anyone involved in Biblical studies today.
A fascinating and important contribution.  Oct 13, 1998
This book, though concerned primarily with the economic life of the earliest churches, is of greater significance than might at first appear. It argues persuasively that New Testament scholarship has failed to take account of the popular culture of the first century and has, as a consequence, badly misrepresented the experiences and practices of the first Christians. The author then provides a model of how an "appropriate context" can be constructed from the diverse array of non-elite sourcs we possess from this period (epitaphs, curse tablets, dream interpretations etc) and reexamines the economic behaviour of the earliest churches in the light of it. The book also contains a concerted criticism of the "new consensus" in Pauline scholarship (the belief that the earliest Christians contained amongst their number members of the elite of their day) and, it has to be said, the plethora of new empirical data provided by the author and his rigorous critique of the consensus' method, leaves it in tatters. A rare book in NT scholarship: one that has something genuinely fresh to say.
